Travis Williams Takes Come from Behind Win on High Rock

Athens, Al - Travis Williams of Salisbury, NC weighed in 10 fish that weighed 35.31 to win the Weekend Bass Series North Carolina event 2014-08-30 on High Rock.

The first day of fishing showed that the North Carolina Division Championship would be a shootout, with eight anglers over 14 pounds.  Coming from fifth place after day one, Salisbury angler Travis Williams brought almost 21 pounds to the scales on day two to secure the victory.  " I was able to catch six keeper fish each day of the tournament and culled once each day.  I was a little disappointed with my first day catch but knew the bigger fish were on the same pattern.  All of my fish came on jigs that I make myself, fishing them in brush and timber up to eight feet deep."

Rounding out the top 10 boaters were:
